From Whiskyfun:

Tomatin 34 yo 1976/2010 (51%, The Nectar of the Daily Drams, sherry butt) Five stars Colour: full gold. Nose: it’s one of these fresh and fruity old Tomatins! Not as much a fruitbomb as some 1960s distillation but still, it’s very fruity. Passion fruits, guavas, mangos, green bananas, kiwis, then more herbal tones (verbena, spearmint, dill, fennel) and then some soft spicy touches, caraway and juniper berries among others. And some funny and unexpected hints of oysters. Am I dreaming? With water: same, not much changes. Mouth (neat): tons of jams, hectolitres of fruit syrups (and fresh fruit juices) and myriads of tiny spicy notes. Quality is very high here as there’s not one single sign of overageing. We’re somewhere between a 1972 Clynelish and a 1981 Lochside. Okay, okay, tangerines, passion fruits, mangos, lemons, vanilla, coconut (just a little…), cinnamon… With water: again, same despite an oakiness that’s just a tiny-wee tad louder (for the record). Finish: medium long, very fruity, very clean, tropical… Comments: a textbook old Tomatin, exactly the style that pushed the distillery to the front of the stage within maniacal circles. It’s also a bit of a miracle as, according to my experience, the big yet delicate fruitiness tends to get killed as soon as there’s a little too much oak in these old Tomatins. Which isn’t the case here, obviously.SGP:751 - 92 points.

Là on cause. Joli panier de fruits exotiques, puis de la mandarine, de la pêche, de l'abricot, du pamplemousse rose, du miel, de la vanille. A l'aveugle j'aurais peut-être parié sur un fût de bourbon. En bouche c'est parfait, l'exotisme est superbe, les épices, cannelle en tête, apportent ce qu'il faut de boisé pour structurer l'ensemble. Dommage que la finale ne soit pas plus longue !!

Color
Burnished
Nose

Un nez très fin et très délicat sur les fruits jaunes et la mandarine, un peu de cire, une pincée de vanille. Le sherry n'est pas envahissant.
Ca sent super bon, faut dire ce qui est.

Taste

Pas mal de poivre, une note mentholée. Des fruits en marmelade sucrée.; et un peu de vanille.

Finish

La finale est assez longue, encore sur le poivre blanc. Le bois se fait un peu sentir ici, sans être imposant pour autant. Un peu de menthe; et encore des fruits.

Comments

Un très bon whisky, assez complexe tout en étant assez fin aussi.

Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose


Woody and fruity. First come cinnamon and ripe kiwis, a very sweet smell. After that come soft vanilla, papaya, and mandarins.

A very busy and complex nose!

Taste


Sweet arrival with a slightly wood-bitter development. Thick and chewy, but not at all oily - rather drying with small tanins.

The taste is more dominated by the wood, resembles some old burbons or ryes, with a citrucy and tropical fruit freshness to balance it a little.

 

Finish


Medium length, sweet, and more similar to the nose with the fruits comming back - mostly with dried papayas and figs.

Almost no bitterness in the finish, which makes it a dram from which you always want to take another sip.

Comments


A great Tomatin, there are few whiskies as fruity. A rare treat indeed that is sadly almost gone.

Note sure why I like this so much but the woodines is just so tasty I`m not sure if I`ve ever tasted such a whisky before. It reminds me of some chinese dishes prepared with dried chili`s and coriander. I call this whisky `1000 dishes in a Dram.`

Nose

Légèrement floral, un petit côté mentholé et poivré, et peu de vanille et de cire d'abeille et puis beaucoup de fruit (abricots, clémentines, mangues) dans un bel ensemble fondu ! Très joli nez. Doux malgré les plus de 50°. Avec quelques goutes d'eau, on retrouve les mêmes fruits avec en plus un peu de citron et de pêches. Waouh

Taste

Très épicé, toujours le même couple poivre-menthe, de la cire, puis on revient sur les fruits exotiques (mangues) et la confiture d'abricot. C'est très gourmand.

Finish

Assez longue sur les fruits et s'éteint sur la cire d'abeille !

Nose

A lot of fruity sweetness, tropical fruit notes, currants, gooseberry, kiwi, hints of mint, some menthol notes, herbs, fern, spices, hints of white pepper, honey, dryness, and a flower store in the middle of hot summer.

Taste

It starts with menthols and honey sweetness, then it goes to lemon peel, some bitterness, immature kiwi, dryness, a variety of spices, white pepper, Provence herbs, and cinnamon. Metallic aftertaste. Eventually quite warming.

Finish

Medium long, warming with hints of cinnamon and herbs, fruit sweetness notes, hints of bitterness, dryness and massive fruit attack.

Amontillad
Nose

Very smooth and feminine, with an intense fruit basket. Tangerines, white peach. Tropical fruits like guava and mango. Some apricot marmalade. Pink grapefruit. A hint of vanilla. Lots of honey. Lovely whiffs of mint as well. Fruity but not too sweet as it also shows a warm herbal side. Excellent.

Taste

Starts spicy (a little pepper), which made me expect a fair amount of oak, but it doesn't break through. After a few seconds it goes back to fruit candy, sweet grapefruit, vanilla, oranges, marmalade, a little banana... Then some fresh herbs and cinnamon.

Finish

Medium length, a tad more woody dryness but still very fruity and warm.

Comments

A Tomatin that's well-aged while maintaining its juicy fruitiness. Recommended.

I find the Oat mint Tomatin of the Nectar a little better. More ripe fruit in the nose, and specially in taste. I is 9 years older so that can excplain it.


But still a fantastic Tomatin
